This is a beautiful spot on the Irish sea with a fantastic staff and authentic Scottish experience. Norman suite was so beautiful I took pictures of each room!

Really a very enjoyable weekend. Lots of great golf and great food. Stunning venue and well trained staff. A pity the sound proofing between rooms are not very good. Drunken parties arriving in the room next to us at 3 every morning. We really did not want to hear what goes into the toilet -top or bottom - especially when it carries on for over an hour and we need to be fresh for golf the next morning.

Stayed in Lands of Turnberry self-catering lodge. Comfortable and spacious accomodation, able to bring dog, perfect for the golfers. The lodges really crying out for a coat of paint and some maintenance, and although things were generally clean, the windows were filthy (inside and out). Hotel felt the same - wanted to be grand, but needs sprucing up. Lots of potential, but needs upgrading. Thought the cost of the stay was reasonable, no doubt will be increased once refurbished.

Rated 4 out of 5 by worldtraveler101 Very Pleasant Stay
Most outstanding was the concierge who was able to accomplish every request, even finding tea when there wasn't any to sell! The food was okay and the chef went to great lengths to accommodate food allergies. The special dining room was truly gourmet - definitely the best meal. The ocean view rooms had great views. The room was nicely updated but there was no lamp by the chairs to enable one to sit and read. Indeed there was no lamp by the desk to enable reasonable use. The golf course was great!

Our experience of Turnberry spans 14 years. We love the Hotel for its friendliness. This year our room was superb, very comfortable, with a luxury bed! Sea and golf views were excellent, as ever.
Food in the 1906 and the Tappie Tourie was well presented and full of flavour.
Best of all are the staff - every area seems to contain friends prepared to help.
We had Sunday brunch - a meal, an experience and an occasion not to be missed...

Playing golf at one of the best course in UK, Never mind even not been rescued from hitting 5 stokes to get out of the bunker.
Food, drinks were great with excellent hospitality and services from the staff.
Thank you for being able to spend the relaxing time able to spend.

Another stay at what has to be described as Heaven on Earth. Superb massage in the spa facilities, 2 unbelievable rounds of golf, breakfast of kings every day and brilliant restaurant recommendations from the Hotel.
My only gripe from the 3 days was that the halfway house on the Ailsa course was closed. Come on Turnberry please consider keeping it open all year so golfers can spend that little bit more time taking in the incredible views of the lighthouse and the ocean! Overall fantastic.

Overall the hotel and staff met my expectations but I spent a very uncomfortable night. I had requested, in advance, two hot water bottles which I was told on the evening of my stay I could not have. There were no extra blankets in the room so I woke up during the night feeling very cold. I also found the pillows most uncomfortable. I received a reduction on my bill but I would have prefered a comfortable sleep. Apart from that it was a wonderful stay and excellent service from the staff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by samantha10 Good all round stay
We were allocated the same room as our last stay. When we arrived the last time the room was dusty , this time it had a stain on the bedside cabinet where something had been spilled and not cleaned up there was a stain on the head board. however, the service food and overall service was very good , cleaning was again not up the standard for this level of hotel. There was flies behind teh shutters , and no slippers in the room on arrival the front desk got theses for us on the second day.

The only disappointing aspect of the stay was dinner on Day 1. The oysters, I hasten to add, were fantastic and we had them on day 2 also. However, we ordered a chateubriand medium rare. It was delivered medium well. After some deliberation, the waitress came back from the chef with an alternative - 2 fillet steaks - which we declined as the chateubriand is a particular favourite. When the chateaubriand was eventually delivered it was medium rare and was very good indeed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mac853 Disappointing
We had higher expectations for a "world class" hotel. We were led to believe that the hotel we would be staying in was the one pictured. Little did we know that there was another building off to the side, where the spa is located. The difference between the two are obvious as you walk from the south wing to the main hotel. Our room had a nice view, but I cannot imagine a "world class" hotel with badly nicked-up furniture, mold in the bathroom sink, broken light fixtures, and large stains on the carpet.
Most of the staff was helpful, and friendly, but after arrival we waited for some time for an extra luggage rack the man said he would be back with--it never came.
Best idea, save your money to play gold and stay at a bed and breakfast at nearby Maybole. The folks in that town were very kind and friendly.

A perfect weekend stay for our 45th Wedding Anniversary. Room, breakfast and bar meal all excellent. The only other comments that I would make are that Juccuzi was out of order and no urgency to repair (i would expect speedier maintenance at a LCR Hotel) and my request for a 3 hour check out extension to attend a champagne reception/ celebration lunch in the 1906 Restaurant was met with a request for a £30 surcharge which I declined!!!! Exhorbitant when it costs the hotel nil!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bonita Best relaxing resort in Scotland
While the hotel is in the best location to relax and enjoy the grounds, it could not happen without the participation and dedication of the staff. From the moment we arrived all the staff played a role in making our stay a memorable one. We stayed five days and ate most meals in the restaurants, I would suggest lighter fare, too much butter in majority of entrees. And must improve wifi- service too slow in rooms. We travel all over the world and will highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by denham2012 Cottages are filthy
Stayed in the cottages. Mold in the showers,mold on the carpets. The first night in the room I had to crush a beetle as it walked across the floor.
Maids left soiled linens in the hallway. Tried to use the "drying room" after a wet day of golf. Found it full of dirty dishes and more soiled linens.
Inquired about changing rooms and was told that the resort was full and there were no other options.
No apology from the front desk staff, no effort at all to improve the situation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Liz601 Xmas Pressie
Overall we had a great time. We were staying on an exceptional DBB special offer given to us at Xmas. We declined to upgrade as we felt that no matter the room it would be good as the hotel is 5star. Unfortunately there was no heating in the bathroom so we were moved to another room. This did have a heated towel rail but as the window was draughty (it was exceptionally windy outside) it wasn't as hot as you would like. Nor was the bedroom, as we found out later. However, I probably should have complained but chose not to make a fuss. All the public rooms, with exception of the ladies changing rooms, were at a comfortable temp. The dinner and breakfast were outstanding as were all the staff. If we are lucky enough to come again then we would probably upgrade or come in warmer months, if that exists in Scotland!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kells Nearly perfect....
A luxury experience let down by check-in organisation and management. Large party occupied all the check-in staff and the system was ponderous. Large parties should be handled separately to individual guests. The rest of the stay was excellent. Room quality was great although the view from 246 was non-existent. The dinner was first class as was the breakfast. Such a shame there were not more Scottish accents on show. Having said that, the staff were charming and helpfu.l

Rated 5 out of 5 by websing Rain or Shine - Turnberry always delivers
A weekend away to escape a relax, delivered exactly what was needed. The weather was not great but that did not dampen our spirit or the spirit of the great staff. The guys at the pro shop where very helpful and the course was immaculate. Dinner in 1906 was great, and the atmosphere, thanks to the large Swiss group, in the Ailsa bar was great and lively.
Turnberry will always be regarded as one of our favourite resorts, My wife and I always look forward to returning.

The glorious weather was a bonus but the hotel was brilliant whether it had been hail, rain or snow.
I was cosseted from the moment I was welcomed from the car park until I returned back to the car three days later.
The service was excellent in all areas throughout my stay, the room was comfortable, particularly the sumptuous bed, and the restaurant food quality was the best I have experienced at Turnberry in over ten visits over ten or so years.
I'll be "hasting" back!

Rated 3 out of 5 by summer2014b Great staff
This hotel has beautiful grounds fantastic staff and offers fantastic food however the size and choice of the spa fcailities lets it down as do the rooms that still require upgrading. i do not understand why these 5 star hotels will have their "renovated" rooms lying empty whilst accomodating people in their "tired" rooms resulting in them walk away with a "mediocre" opinion of the accomodation rather than being overwhelmed as you would expect of a 5 star resosrt.

Staff are friendly and attentive and service received excellent. Spa facilities are very good.
Sampled several "flight" dishes from the menu in the Ailsa lounge. All were tasty. The afternoon tea was delicious and is a must during any stay.
Sea views from the room were stunning. The rooms are well appointed with a great bathroom. The only criticism was that the skirting boards were marked and the bed valance stained. The Ailsa golf course is a magnificent layout.

We had a week stay at the Lands of Turnberry. Had been led to believe that apartments had been upgraded, but ours didn't appear to be. A bit worn around the edges and the beds were universally found to be below par. However, the apartments were spacious. The facilities at the hotel are great and we all had plenty to do. The views from the hotel are gorgeous and combine this with excellent cuisine and eating at 1906 was a treat. Staff were universally good too.

Room119 was great apart from draft fro,m windows.
Room 133 was nice but the noise of doors banging from 5am-5.40 was dreadful.
Is there a service door near there?
The hotel is still as nice as I remember from staying there many years ago but we did miss the Snooker table!
The staff couldn't have been more helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.

A lovely hotel with spacious rooms and comfortable beds.. The afternoon tea and the quality of the food at Tappie Toorie was very good. I realy enjoyed the Spa facilities too .I don't play golf but there is a lovely view of the course and you can walk around the beach area to the lighthouse. I would definitely stay here again.

We were both impressed by the Reception of the Staff and quality of the environment. However, we were disappointed in the range of food available to us in the Restaurant. We expected that a steak and chips would have vegetables served as standard and most disappointed to find an extra charge for this simple dish. The Hotel generally is 5 star but the Restaurant Menu let it down. However, we must express our sincere thanks to the professional Staff.

I have just returned from Turnberry Hotel and found the whole experience to be therapeutic. The hotel has a restful ambience to it with lots of seating areas to lounge in whilst enjoying beautiful views of Ailsa Craig and the sea. The staff were extremely friendly and most helpful and the 1906 restaurant first class. The bedrooms are tastefully furnished and are very comfortable. All in all a great experience and one which warrants a return stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chuck57 Terrific resort except for Spa building room
The view is spectacular, the restaurants and bars are very nice, the golf courses are amazing and the spa/exercise room facilities are great. But for more than $600/night we were put in a Spa building room with tired fixtures, peeling paint, a broken curtain rod and dated furnishings. To be a real 5-star resort, the rooms have to be first class, and our room had a LONG way to go to get to first class. The room didn't justify the hefty pricetag.

amazing place. went for the golf and had 3 great round on both courses. highly recommended. weather was good too which helped. Hotel was fantastic, food a bit nouveau for me, very tasty, but i am a big lad who likes his portions. Only down side was our booking kept disappearing on computer, reservation, dinner, golf. got a bit tiresome having to go through booking again. did have confirmation e-mail with everything correct. WELL WORTH A VISIT

Turnberry hotel and golf facilities are 5 star but my reasons for marking down slightly were for the small touches that normally one would expect from such an establishment. As an example on arrival we decided to have a light bite before playing the Ailsa course. We ordered 2 lemon chicken wraps and a toasted sandwich and that's what we got but they were pretty underwhelming when you consider the wraps were £11 each. I then arranged for my car to be washed for £20 , I needed to collect my glasses and I was horrified to see mud in the foot wells and a very shabby clean of the car itself. The room was large and spacious but my tea bags were not replaced in fact nor was water or shampoo and shower gel in the bathroom. It's little things but they are the sort of things you hope would not occur. All said we had fun and I would return in the future
